NASHVILLE, TENN – Stanford University Press continues to expand their reach and impact in the academic space with Ingram Content Group's distribution network. Stanford University Press is now using CoreSource, Ingram's digital asset management and distribution platform, to increase their digital presence in the academic market.
In November, Stanford University Press signed with Ingram Academic Services, Ingram's distribution service geared towards the unique needs of academic publishers. The addition of Ingram's CoreSource taps into the unique offerings to quickly connect to libraries, handle complex pricing, and implement digital rental pricing, as well as CoreSource's superior reach to all markets.
"We've been exploring the various services of CoreSource, and especially the integration of features across the range of Ingram products. From ebook deliveries and digital asset management to print-on-demand via Lightning Source, for both inventory and marketing, the range of options has transformed almost all aspects of our business," said Alan Harvey, director of Stanford University Press.
CoreSource offers management and distribution technology for metadata and files, with one of the world's largest distribution networks, making it simple for publishers to effectively reach a larger, global audience and sell more physical, digital and audio books. With over 430 available business partners, Stanford can continue focusing on their efforts to identify and grow their authors and title collection, while Ingram works on the logistics of effective distribution.
"Stanford University Press works with some of the brightest individuals. Their must-have titles cover everything from finance and security to business and history," said Marcus Woodburn, vice president of digital products at Ingram Content Group. "University and academic publishers challenge citizens to continue to learn and question. We're thrilled to help Stanford, along with 40+ university presses and many more academic publishers, to reach even more readers and increase their sales."
